Good gaming backpacks tend to be bulky or in some cases have some sort of hard shell for added protection. When I pulled the Razer Rogue 17.3″ backpack out of my bag, I was amazed at how slim it looked. The backpack is mostly black with the occasional neon green stitching, not much but enough to frame the backpack nicely. The Razer logo is printed vertically from top to bottom on the front with an almost vinyl-like finish. Depending on how the light hits it, it's almost invisible at times, so the branding is there but not overly noticeable. Looking at the backpack, a zipper runs down the front right side that opens into a fairly large but somewhat thin compartment. Underneath that front compartment is a nylon strap sewn to form four loops for carrying things I'm not sure about.

Just behind this front pocket is another double zip that runs about halfway up each side. Inside this compartment is a rear facing sleeve and in the top third a horizontal zipped pocket with a clip on a nylon strap. One sleeve pocket with velcro underneath and one mesh pocket in front. On the other side there is another pocket with velcro closure, perfect for a mouse. Finally, in the four corners behind the top half of the zipper and at the bottom of the front are the four flaps with side release buckles that connect with the four nylon straps coming from the back.

There is a smaller zipper behind the zipper in the accessory compartment. Once you unzip, you'll see a smaller compartment that might fit your smartphone if you're not used to carrying it in your pocket. It's also a great place to keep your keys or other small items that you want to keep separate.

Behind the large front pocket is a zip running bottom right to bottom left (or vice versa since it's double zipped) which leads to a fairly roomy main compartment. The bottom has the most padding, while there's thinner padding on the front, back, and sides, but it's enough to protect whatever you decide to put in there. Depending on the size of your laptop, this will fit snugly here, but this area is better for accessories like power adapters and headphones. It's nice to see removable dividers like this, perhaps attached with Velcro, so you can separate areas for your accessories.

At the top center of the backpack, behind the main compartment, is a handle with the Razer nameplate on it. The handle attaches to itself with velcro, but is also sewn to the nylon underneath when detached, so the velcro fold fits the look better than anything else. The handles are well padded, but are comfortable to hold when carrying a full backpack.

Behind the handle is another double zipper, starting about 10cm up on each side. Unzipping reveals a narrower full-length compartment with a laptop compartment at the back. in the case where17″ Razer Blade ProHere it fits perfectly as the sleeve is made of stretchy fabric that keeps the laptop in place very well. Thicker laptops can have issues, but there's always a main compartment. While I was able to fit my 1 1/2" x 12" x 16 3/4" laptop into the sleeve, I was unable to fully enclose it. Although there are two compartments for your laptop, I find the backpack more comfortable to carry is when the laptop is in the rearmost compartment, not to mention that additional gaming gear fits more easily in the large open main compartment.

The sides of the pack are made from standard pack material and are just over 6 3/4 inches wide when fully expanded. On the left side (again seen from the front of the backpack) there is a zipped pocket in the middle. Unzip to reveal a slightly larger mesh pocket with drawstring closure for carrying water bottles. Unfortunately, this only fits the smaller water bottles you buy in the supermarket and not the big ones you might want to carry around.

The back of the backpack has a nicely padded but breathable green foam and mesh design. The green is barely visible through the mesh, but enough to add a bit of color, not that you'd see it while wearing a backpack. The shoulder straps are nicely reinforced with horizontal nylon webbing and extra stitching. There is also some padding on the inside of the shoulder straps, although it is a bit thin. Nevertheless, it is comfortable to carry even with a fully loaded backpack and the shoulder straps do not press in.

On the outside of the straps, a strip of nylon runs the full length of each strap, with adjustable buckles at the top and bottom of the straps. This is a nice touch as there are adjustment options at the top and bottom that allow you to properly adjust the pack and keep it where you are most comfortable. The Razer Snake logo is placed on a small square rubber patch on the left shoulder strap (when wearing the backpack) and adds the finishing touch to the backpack. Finally, a sternum strap, which is both vertically adjustable and tightenable, rounds out the backpack's rear shoulder straps.

Finally, the bottom of the backpack is reinforced with a rough imitation leather material. While this provides more padding, it also offers more floor protection and prevents the canvas fabric from fraying. There is a hidden zipper on the back that I didn't notice at first. Unzip it and voila! Inside is a reversible rain/dust cover. When you want to take it off, it attaches to the side release buckle.

If the 17.3″ Razer Rogue backpack is too big for you, Razer also has 13.3″ and 15.6″ versions. Overall, the backpack is very well constructed and feels solid. While the compartments are large and roomy, it would be nice to see something a little more small. Internal pockets or compartments for easily transporting your peripherals and other gaming gear would be nice.


The bottom and sides of the Razer Rogue backpack seem to have enough padding to protect your laptop and gaming gear from the general crush when you're using public transport or just carrying it around and tossing it in the car. I say "throw" lightly because everyone throws a bag with a laptop and gaming gear in it. All in all, the Razer Rogue does a good job of protecting your gear from bumps and the elements with a removable rain/dust cover, assuming you're not in the habit of abusing your gear.


At $149.99, the Razer Rogue Backpack isn't exactly cheap. Still, it's well made and the stitching seems to hold up to heavy use. Of course, like most reputable brands, you'll have to pay a little more to spread your love for the Razer cult or to join the Razer cult.
